    P.S. Godzilla had the 17th highest budget on the site you linked to.

    Additionally 136M isn't that much, the top 20 grossed >260M in the US market.

    Forrest Gump
    Shrek

    Blade, I'm a film professional. The industry is my job and other passion. I have a great deal of "experience", more than many critics because I'm not wearing rose colored glasses about the whole process. After you've had stuff thrown at you because an actress is feeling "vulnerable", you don't have a lot of illusions.

    The Matrix was considered -- rightfully -- a technical masterpiece. Also, it made execs cream themselves because it made lots of money. That's about it.

    It's still a fun movie to watch, but very cold and emotionless. All style and fluff. Just very, very beautiful style and fluff.

    P.S. If you are on the IMDb but don't have any information down, I'll gladly write your biography.

    Somehow I doubt that The Matrix would even be hailed by some individuals as a masterpiece if not for the multi-million dollar advertising campaign that proceeded its release, tantalising millions of moviegoers in a campaign that was sheer brilliance.

    In terms of scriptwork and acting, the Matrix sucked ass. With Keanu "Dude!" Reeves at the helm, how could it be anything else. The pseudo-philosophy didn't induce anywhere near the amount of thought that films such as Gattaca and Minority Report induced, basically using snazzy visual effects to keep viewers interested.

    And kept them interested it did. The 'Wire-Fu' Techniques it introduced, such as the 360 degree camera freeze and pan, were revolutionary. In terms of special effects, it deserves big props, but ultimately, thought-provoking it wasn't.

    However, I'm sure everyone will agree with me that it was far, far better than the latest Star Wars movies. George Lucas deserves many slaps upside the head for letting his arrogance get in the way of DECENT SCRIPT EDITING!!!!!!

    and you didnt get that in action movies before Matrix.
    I think Luan hit you in the head REALLY HARD. I love you Osiris, but this is crazy.

    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog
